High-Speed Internet Event Moved To Upstairs Over Fox's Pizza Due To Construction

If you are a business or resident who is interested in obtaining high-speed internet access, plan to attend a networking event on Wednesday, October 15 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Potter County Education Council Port Allegany office.

Due to construction in front of the Port Allegany Office of PCEC, the location of this meeting has been changed to UPSTAIRS OVER FOX'S PIZZA in Port Allegany. Use the door to the left of the main Fox's entrance.

The event, sponsored by the Pennsylvania eCommerce Association, will highlight a broadband outreach and aggregation campaign starting this month in McKean and Potter counties. The association is working with the Potter County Education Council to help broadband deployment efforts for businesses and residents.

Information will be provided on the types of internet access available, a listing of service providers and efforts underway to encourage more deployment in McKean and Potter counties.

The association will explain a Commonwealth of Pennsylvania initiative: Bona Fide Retail Request or BFRR. The program is based upon residents and businesses applying for broadband through their local telephone company.

Once a threshold number of requests are received, the local telephone company is required to deploy broadband within one year.

Businesses or residents, by completing a survey, will indicate their interest and need for high-speed internet. Responses from this survey will determine the aggregate demand for broadband by geographical area.

Results will be shared with providers to encourage broadband deployment efforts.
If you are interested in knowing what you can do to encourage faster deployments of internet service, plan to attend this event by calling the Potter County Education Council at 814-642-2295.

Light refreshments will be served and there is no charge for this event.

Just what isn't the Potter County Education involved in? Where do they get their money for all the very important classes they offer? Where did this lady who runs the place come from. How did Doug Morley's sister-in-law getg her job. Who is paying for her continuing education. What ever happened the that DeLong person - you know, the one who received the $30,000 job as a contractor for the CASD job. What are his credentials? Who recommended him?
Jones, do you ever investigate anything you report?

Editor replies: The Potter County Education Council is involved in a huge amount of educational programs that have never been offered in the area before. I don't know what they aren't involved in, but you can find out some of the things they are involved in as well as the history of it's formation on their website; They get their money for the classes from the students that take the classes and sometimes from employers who sponsor their employees; The lady who runs the place came here from the Philadelphia area, and you have that part right, she is a LADY; Janine Morley got her job by applying for it, and does her job very competently; If someone is paying for her continuing education, that's their business, not yours; That DeLong person is Mitch DeLong. He was contracted to oversee the school project. He is very qualified and formerly was in charge of Glenn O. Hawbaker's Turtlepoint Plant operation. He also spends many volunteer hours for Habitat for Humanity, is involved with the Farm Market program, PCEC and who knows what else. His dedication to the betterment of Potter County is well known. I don't know who recommended him, but I certainly would. If I investigated everything I report, I wouldn't have any time to report. I assumed most people already know the facts I just reported for you, but I'm happy to fill you in. If there is anything else you need investigated, you can generally find it in the Potter Leader-Enterprise, but or course you'll have to pay the $1.25 to read it.

Good reply, Jim. I wish these folks with crazy conspiracy theories and a lot of negative comments would fuel some of that energy into being constructive and working to meet the challenges that Potter County faces.

The Ed Council has done countless positive things for our communities over the years. We're extremely fortunate to have that institution and the individuals who work there.
